Register Your Relay For Life Team!

Montrose, PA - The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Susquehanna County is just around the corner. Register your team today by calling the American Cancer Society at (570) 278-1694. This "celebration of life" brings the community together in a unified effort to fight cancer.

Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations, and the public are invited to take part in this exciting team event. Relay For Life takes place from 1:00 p.m. July 21 until 1:00 p.m. on July 22 at Montrose Area High School Track.

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's version of an athletic relay, but with a new twist. Relay For Life is a family-oriented event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and also raise funds to support the activities of the American Cancer Society. Participants camp out at the Relay site, and when they are not taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment.

Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals, and schools collect donations and can win individual and team prizes for their efforts.

"Relay For Life brings the progress against cancer to the forefront," said Tammy Love, event chair. "Many participants are our family, friends and neighbors who have dealt with cancer themselves. Their involvement is proof of the progress that has been not only reducing death rates, but also in the quality of life following cancer treatment.

"The funds raised enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services. Thanks to the generosity of corporate sponsors like Conklin Players Club and Trehab Center, the money raised by participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society's lifesaving programs."

Information about how to form a team or become involved in Relay For Life is available from the American Cancer Society at (570) 278-1694. For more information on cancer, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or visit


Ride For Life XIX In Full Swing

The largest netting Harley-Davidson fundraising event in the world, Ride For Life, sponsored by the Eastern Harley-Davidson Dealers Association, has begun.

Motorcycle riders and non-riders alike from the eastern half of Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland and Northern Virginia are heading to their local dealer to pick up a registration packet to participate. They will start collecting donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association that helps local individuals and families who are affected by neuromuscular diseases.

Participants will raise money for MDA while having a chance to win a variety of incentives based on the level of money raised. For every $325 raised, they will receive one chance to win a one-of-a-kind 2006 Harley- Davidson Dyna "Street Bob" Motorcycle. Also new this year are prizes for children.

Completed registration packets and donations should be returned to the local Harley-Davidson dealer by April 29, 2006.

The big event for all those who raise $45 or more is the grand finale: Ride For Life XIX, on May 6 at East Penn Manufacturing near Reading, PA, and May 7 at Dorney Park, in Allentown, PA. Ride For Life XIX features two full days of fun and activities.

Join the thousands of riders who participate annually. For more details about Ride For Life XIX and a complete list of dealers, visit the Eastern Harley-Davidson Dealers Association website:
